Product Description

The Kamenstein Perfect Tear Paper Towel Holder keeps your paper towels from unraveling and helps you tear off just the amount you need. This paper towel holder's 11 inch wire cage is designed to fit any size roll. The holder is constructed entirely of metal, with a bright chrome finish. The holder's ingenious ratchet system prevents rolls from unraveling. The holder allows for easy, one-handed operation. The heavy chrome-finished arm secures to the wall for horizontal dispensing of towels.

Amazon.com

The Perfect Tear paper towel holder eliminates waste by allowing exactly the desired number of paper towel sheets to be torn off the roll with just one hand. The secret lies in the secure, horizontally wall-mounted base and the ratchet system inside the towel holder. By allowing the roll to make incremental turns in just one direction, the ratchet holds the roll steady during pulling and tearing, thus preventing unraveling.

Three parts come with this towel holder: a weighted chrome arm that protrudes five inches from the wall (two screw holes are on a two-inch center; two 1-1/8-inch screws and two plastic sleeves are included); an 11-inch metal dowel that screws into the arm and features a bullet-shape tip; and a flexible wire cage through which the central dowel passes that conforms to the inside cardboard tube of a paper towel roll. The dowel and cage attach to the arm without tools, but a Phillips-head screwdriver (and possibly a drill) is needed for the wall-mounting. Both standard and oversized rolls slide onto the holder. --Ann Bieri

You'd think it would be hard to get excited by something as inane as a paper towel holder. I originally saw this product in several mail-order catalogues, priced at 30 - 40 dollars. For the 10 bucks it's priced at here, it is WELL worth it! I work behind a bar and have two of this item back there - being a bartender I'm almost constantly wet from being elbow deep in the sinks. I hate handling things or making drinks with wet hands, so on a busy night I probably go through 7 or 8 full rolls of towels. I use so many, a customer recently asked if I was Obsessive Compulsive - not quite, but I like clean and dry surfaces everywhere around the bar. These holders have held up well, I thought the ratcheting mechanism might be cheaply made and eventually give out - no sign of that yet. The ratchet is well made and well balanced - not so much resistance as to force you to dispense a single sheet at a time, but enough that you can tear whatever you've pulled off at the perforation every time. It's also solidly built and handles abuse really well - when busy, I won't fuss with a delicate mechanism - everything gets slammed around and knocked around with considerable force. Towel rolls remount quickly and easily. I'm pretty rough on equipment and have broken most things behind that bar at least once. This product definitely holds up under the toughest commercial abuse. If you're a big fan of the oversized rolls, they may rub against whatever surface you mount this too, but it still works.

Initial Review Posted 2-26-10: With my family having the wasteful habit of tearing off 2 to 4 sheets to wipe up a few droplets on the counter, this holder is one of the best investments I have made in awhile. My family was going through $30 per month in rolls and now the usage is down to less than $15 per month. Made my money back in less than 2 weeks!

4-3-10 Update after using the product:

I purchased 2 of these and now find that although initially these holders worked excellent and as advertised, I now have no recourse but to downgrade my rating from 5 stars to 2 stars. The problem with this product is not the design - in fact the ratcheting/tension mechanism is pure genius. The problem lies in the materials they used to manufacture the product. After disassembling the broken holders I found that the internal ratchet that produces the tension on the spool is made of the cheapest thin brittle plastic I've seen. The plastic spline on the ratchet on both units broke with normal use within a month. After they break, all you have is a normal roller without tension. Had they thought of upgrading the material to metal for the ratchet/spline and charged a little more for this product, I'm quite sure people would be happy to pay a bit more for this product, as it was very useful before it broke.

I've had mine for several years until the ratchet mechanism failed as several others have reported here. Mine is an older model with a different knob on the end but I suspect with the same plastic ratchet mechanism inside that creates the tension to keep the paper towel roll from spinning freely when a sheet is torn off. The fix was to unscrew the spindle and fit two washers between the end of the spindle and the bracket that holds the unit to your cabinet or wall. I cut the washers, about 1-1/2" diameter, out of a sheet of felt. Punched a 1/4" hole in the center for the threaded screw with a paper punch. I used felt that has adhesive on one side but left the release paper in place, probably not important. It took two of these washers to fill the gap enough to create the needed tension. This paper towel holder is so unique and I like how works so much that it was worth the effort to fix it.

This is a beautifully designed paper towel holder. It installed wonderfully and worked perfectly until the primary bolt that holds the spindle to the bracket came loose. The threads stripped out of the base metal of the bracket. As it turns out, the base metal is very soft and not strong enough to hold up to daily use. Mine only lasted a couple of months. Very disappointing.

Quality paper towel holder. It's a little noisy, but I like the fact that I don't have to hold the roll with one hand and rip with the other.

UPDATE: Originally I gave it 4 stars. After a few months of use, something is loose. There isn't any tension, so it's basically like any old paper towel holder, just more expensive.

Hold the cardboard tube, not the towels, as you press a roll onto the spindle or the towels will "telescope." No yanking off 20 towels by accident and true one-handed operation. Solid construction and unobtrusive footprint. Great product!

Oh how happy I was when we first met! It was everything I'd ever dreamt a a paper towel holder could be. Stylish, responsive, and never wasted my time or a single towel. I bragged about it to my friends and family - I'd finally met a towel holder I could imagine living with for a lifetime. If only all kitchen appliances could work so well. It made me smile just to tear off a towel with which to clean the stovetop.

Now it's three months later, and it has betrayed me. It has stopped working. I am all the more disheartened, because I had been expecting so much. The ratcheting system that had been the basis of our special relationship is broken, gone, as if it had never existed. Towel rolls just spin freely, as they do with any other cheap towel holder. And try as I might, I cannot find any way to repair it! There isn't even a website with an address to which to direct a letter.

This paper towel holder raised my hopes for performance to a height I'd never seen before, only to callously fling them down to the stony ground far below.

If you want to get your heart broken and your hopes dashed by yet another kitchen appurtenance, buy this. Otherwise, you are better off with the plastic gimcrackery you can get at the supermarket. At least that junk costs far less.

This is going in the pile of modern kitchen appliances that are garbage, next to the three toaster-ovens I'd tried in the past five years. What ever happened to quality?

Seriously - a major disappointment, appliance-wise.
